I can’t say how long it’s been since I last posted something here. It’s been that kind of year. In the last few years we have been warned about some ‘pandemic’ somewhere else in the world- which didn’t amount to shit. This one is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish. Started in a Chinese fish market? Uh huh.
ALL I can say is this year has been one for the books. Did you know there was also a ‘pandemic’ back in 1919? It was called the Spanish Flu. A quick check on google says it was actually H1N1, also called swine flu. Millions died then too.
ON a more personal front, at least it looks like no one has brought the corona virus to the chrome n rust world headquarters (yet). Speaking of Corona, I could use a beer. Mrs. Chrome N Rust and myself have been using the ‘canary in a coal mine test’ as the best means to prove we are not infected. After all, if she caught it, I would be the first to know- and catch it. Same goes the other way. I’m not having some nimrod stuff a swab half-way to my brain to give the new world order a sample of my DNA.
SURE, I sound like one of those tinfoil helmet conspiracy theory kooks. So what? I would rather error on the side of caution, then help load myself onto a cattle car. (WWII reference here- look it up.) The fact is that for all of the talk of need to isolate and self-distance, not much has changed from business as usual. The government f*#king up the economy has already done that.
ON the automotive side of things, there are still TONS of cool parts and project vehicles to be had out in the yard. So, if you aren’t afraid, come on out and have a look before it is buried in the white stuff. Even mother nature seems to be part of the plot…
